The effect of sesame (Sesamum orientale) lignan preparation containing equivalent amounts of sesamin and episesamin on hepatic fatty acid metabolism was compared in rats, mice and hamsters. Animals were fed on either a diet free of lignan or a diet containing 2 g lignan/kg for 15 d. The lignan preparation greatly increased hepatic activity and the mRNA levels of enzymes involved in fatty acid oxidation, while it strongly down-regulated those of enzymes involved in lipogenesis in rats.
